Location, Location, Location! Camping, Hotels, Lodging, Local Attractions

Location Information
Centre Airpark
Centre Hall, Pennsylvania 16828
GPS Coordinates: 40.8117311, -77.6572194

This is an active airport <not as much full scale traffic these days> with a 3000' X 230' grass runway that has hosted our club and events for 5+ years. SCRC tends to a 700' X 60' short mowed and roll runway for RC activities.

Early Season Huckin
March 2012 Chilli Huckin (1 min 56 sec)

This Year, Turbine view
DV8R JET MAIDEN FLIGHT (7 min 38 sec)

Here is a "Virtual Tour" of the field from a few years back.
Hanger 9 35% Extra 260 (5 min 24 sec)

Being so close to State College there is no shortage of near by shopping, activities, and sites.... And dont forget the local mountain views.

State College Attractions http://www.visitpennstate.org/visito...o/attractions/
Nittany Mall 20 minutes http://shopnittanymall.com
Penns Cave 10 minutes http://www.pennscave.com/

Hotel and Lodging
Seven Mountains Camp Grounds 15 minutes http://www.sevenmountainscampground.com/
Camping at the Field, the pilot parking along the line can have campers but there is a little bit of a slope so bring extra leveling blocks. Sorry, we have no camper hooks on site. NOTE: PM me if you have a camper or large trailer so we can make sure we have spots lined out for you.

Contests * Raffles * Prizes * Bragging Rights

We are lining up the events and bling.

Show Us Your Cheese! Cheese up, Bling out, and trick out your Plane to compete against all the others. This is not a recovering contest as much as a "what have you done" to make your plane unique, create a theme, or just sport it up! Custom Coverings are welcome to compete as well. We have a very good panel of judges set up for this very event. Details and prizes to follow. We will be doing a professional photo shoot of the top 3 for next year's calendar.

Foamy Combat Death Match! Bring your Foamies and extra batteries.

Other Events will be listed as we work out the details. If you have seen a contest you have enjoyed at other events, drop me a PM and we will do what we can to add it to the lineup.

Just out side of State College <Penn State>, not far off of I-80 and it is NOT a Game weekend. I look to have all this info updated this weekend.

We will have an area for Charging, even though it is listed under the Electric Events, it was never intended to be electric soley.

60'X700' Short mow / rolled runway on a 3000'X230' full scale runway.
